For <G1063> every <G3956> high priest <G0749> taken <G2983> <G5746> from among <G1537> men <G0444> is ordained <G2525> <G5743> for <G5228> men <G0444> in things [pertaining] to <G4314> God <G2316>, that <G2443> he may offer <G4374> <G5725> both <G5037> gifts <G1435> and <G2532> sacrifices <G2378> for <G5228> sins <G0266>:
2
Who can <G1410> <G5740> have compassion <G3356> <G5721> on the ignorant <G0050> <G5723>, and <G2532> on them that are out of the way <G4105> <G5746>; for <G1893> that he <G4029> <G0000> himself <G0846> also <G2532> is compassed <G4029> <G5736> with infirmity <G0769>.
3
And <G2532> by reason <G1223> hereof <G5026> he ought <G3784> <G5719>, as <G2531> for <G4012> the people <G2992>, so <G3779> also <G2532> for <G4012> himself <G1438>, to offer <G4374> <G5721> for <G5228> sins <G0266>.
4
And <G2532> no <G3756> man <G5100> taketh <G2983> <G5719> this honour <G5092> unto himself <G1438>, but <G0235> he that is called <G2564> <G5746> of <G5259> God <G2316>, as <G2509> <G2532> [was] Aaron <G0002>.
5
So <G3779> also <G2532> Christ <G5547> glorified <G1392> <G5656> not <G3756> himself <G1438> to be made <G1096> <G5677> an high priest <G0749>; but <G0235> he that said <G2980> <G5660> unto <G4314> him <G0846>, Thou <G4771> art <G1488> <G5748> my <G3450> Son <G5207>, to day <G4594> have <G1080> <G0000> I <G1473> begotten <G1080> <G5758> thee <G4571>.
6
As <G2531> he saith <G3004> <G5719> also <G2532> in <G1722> another <G2087> [place], Thou <G4771> [art] a priest <G2409> for <G1519> ever <G0165> after <G2596> the order <G5010> of Melchisedec <G3198>.
7
Who <G3739> in <G1722> the days <G2250> of his <G0848> flesh <G4561>, when he had offered up <G4374> <G5660> prayers <G1162> and <G5037> <G2532> supplications <G2428> with <G3326> strong <G2478> crying <G2906> and <G2532> tears <G1144> unto <G4314> him that was able <G1410> <G5740> to save <G4982> <G5721> him <G0846> from <G1537> death <G2288>, and <G2532> was heard <G1522> <G5685> in that <G0575> he feared <G2124>;
8
Though <G2539> he were <G5607> <G5752> a Son <G5207>, yet learned he <G3129> <G5627> obedience <G5218> by <G0575> the things which <G3739> he suffered <G3958> <G5627>;
9
And <G2532> being made perfect <G5048> <G5685>, he became <G1096> <G5633> the author <G0159> of eternal <G0166> salvation <G4991> unto all <G3956> them that obey <G5219> <G5723> him <G0846>;
10
Called <G4316> <G5685> of <G5259> God <G2316> an high priest <G0749> after <G2596> the order <G5010> of Melchisedec <G3198>.
11
Of <G4012> whom <G3739> we <G2254> have <G3056> <G0000> many things <G4183> to say <G3056>, and <G2532> hard <G1421> to be uttered <G3004> <G5721>, seeing <G1893> ye are <G1096> <G5754> dull <G3576> of hearing <G0189>.
12
For <G1063> when for <G1223> the time <G5550> ye ought <G3784> <G5723> to be <G1511> <G5750> teachers <G1320>, ye have <G2192> <G5719> need <G5532> that one teach <G1321> <G5721> you <G5209> again <G3825> which <G5101> [be] the first <G0746> principles <G4747> of the oracles <G3051> of God <G2316>; and <G2532> are become such as <G1096> <G5754> have <G2192> <G5723> need <G5532> of milk <G1051>, and <G2532> not <G3756> of strong <G4731> meat <G5160>.
13
For <G1063> every one <G3956> that useth <G3348> <G5723> milk <G1051> [is] unskilful <G0552> in the word <G3056> of righteousness <G1343>: for <G1063> he is <G2076> <G5748> a babe <G3516>.
14
But <G1161> strong <G4731> meat <G5160> belongeth to them that are <G2076> <G5748> of full age <G5046>, [even] those who by reason <G1223> of use <G1838> have <G2192> <G5723> their senses <G0145> exercised <G1128> <G5772> to <G4314> discern <G1253> both <G5037> good <G2570> and <G2532> evil <G2556>.
